Marshall Chiles, founder and owner of Laughing Skull Comedy Club, always wanted to have a comedy festival that was judged by people who truly know standup comedy. Competition comedy festivals are usually judged by a radio DJ, a hairdresser, and a life coach. Sorry, but those people do not know what it means to be a great standup comedian.
Most comedy festivals try to get as many big names as possible and focus on celebrity appeal to sell tickets, while Chiles instead chooses to focus on pure talent by only bringing in the best-unsigned comedians from all over the country (with the occasional celebrity surprise). The main focus of this festival is to showcase these up-and-coming comics for the comedy industry’s top agents, managers, and bookers so they can advance their careers to the next level. In the past seven years, Comedy Fest comedians have gone on to perform on The Tonight Show, Conan, Letterman, Comedy Central, Last Comic Standing, America’s Got Talent, Just for Laughs, and much more!
After viewing submissions from over 800 comedians from all over North America, Comedy Fest invited the best 72 of the bunch to Atlanta to compete for the coveted first place prize (which includes $1000 cash, the coveted crystal microphone trophy, future bookings, and the oddly prestigious title of Winner of the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival).
This show features 12+ comedians, and no 2 shows are the same!
